I bought this book on Amazon and didn't realize I'd bought the wrong book for my class. I did take the shrink wrap off the book, but haven't read it at all. It is in great shape. No highlighting, writing, underlining, tears or anything. Mine is a non-smoking household and I bought it from a non-smoking household, so no smoke smell.

Develop the skills and knowledge to make informed decisions regarding technical factors and diagnostic imaging quality with this illustrated, full-color resource. Updated with the latest advances in radiologic science, the ninth edition addresses a broad range of radiologic disciplines, providing a foundation in the study and practice of radiologic physics, imaging, radiobiology, radiation protection, and more. Learning tools strengthen your understanding of key concepts, and review exercises help you prepare for certification.

This full-color textbook provides a solid presentation of radiologic science including the fundamentals of radiologic physics to prepare students for the ARRT certification exam. Also provided is a standard of knowledge from which practicing radiographers can make decisions about technical factors and diagnostic image quality in the work place. Key concepts are pulled highlighted in boxes, alerting students to need-to-know information. This edition includes new and expanded coverage of fluoroscopy, cardiovascular and interventional radiology, digital x-ray imaging, mammography, and multislice spiral CT.
